Hyundai India has launched the 2023 Aura facelift in India at Rs 6.30 lakh (ex-showroom). Similar to the 2023 Hyundai Grand i10 Nios facelift, the Aura facelift also gets first-in-segment four airbags as a standard safety feature. The car comes in petrol and CNG powertrains which are RDE compliant and E20 Fuel Ready.
The 2023 Aura facelift gets a black radiator grille and new LED DRLs in the front. The front bumper has also been redesigned to give the car a wider stance. Riding on 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, the sedan also gets chrome treatment on the exterior door handles. The rear profile features a new wing spoiler and chrome trim to give it a more sophisticated appearance. It now gets a new Starry Night shade replacing the Vintage Brown option from the outgoing model.
The cabin features glossy black inserts, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, chrome finish on the gear knob, and parking lever tip as well as metal finish inside door handles and new fabric upholstery with Aura branding. The Aura facelift continues to be powered by the same 1.2-litre engine. This comes mated to a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox. However, Hyundai has done away with the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine option.
Some of the notable features in the 2023 Hyundai Aura facelift are a 3.5-inch instrument cluster with Multi-Information Display, Footwell Lighting, Wireless Phone Charger, Fast USB Charger – Type C, Automatic Headlamps, Steering Wheel Mounted Controls for Audio & Bluetooth, Smart Key with Push Button Start/Stop, Cruise Control and 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Voice Recognition. The price of the facelifted Aura starts from Rs 6.30 lakh for the base petrol E variant, going up to Rs 8.87 lakh for the CNG SX variant.
